Spring Precious Moments

I would have to question whether spring has actually sprung down in the South East of England...it is still freeeeezing here, although the sunshine does pop its merry head out every now and again to remind us all of what we are missing. The tide has turned in the angelicscalliwags homeschool.  We are relaxed once…

Wintery Precious Moments {February Week Three}

I can't believe I'm going to start yet another post with another infection, but I am  🙁  My littlest came down with a tummy infection, which I believe is just an extension of the cold/flu bug we can't seem to shift.  She spent the day vomiting phlegm, with a really high temperature.  It started early…

Before I reflect on my week, I must thank all of you for the outpouring of love and support I have with regards to me asking for help.  One hears about how the home school blogging community is a rather special one, and of course I have seen that first hand over the years.  But…

Wibbly Wobbly Weight-loss – Losing Weight the Wibbly, Wobbly Way

You all know I've just returned from a wonderful break in Ireland?  Gary had already decided that there was no way he would be dieting on holiday.  For me it was less clear cut.  I finally chose to attempt to be moderate.  Yes, I do realise that sentence has probably made anyone who knows me…

It's been another quiet week on the school side of things but very noisy on the coughing side of things with all of us down, to some degree, with a cold and flu type bug.  I am once again so grateful to have Gary as my husband.  For the two days I was feeling rotten…

This was such a great week this week.  We got loads done, had lots of free time and enjoyed each other thoroughly!  My photos begin on Saturday.  Saturdays are generally recognised as family work days in our house hold.  This is our chance to wash cars, clean out animal living areas, wash bedding, garden, and…

Precious Moments

This week has been a bit slow in the school department with much of my time taken up creating a new learning space out of our old hallway.  The reason for doing this is to have a quiet place for the older ones to study, away from the little ones when necessary and also it…

Welcome to my first ever proper weekly wrap up.  I feel all chuffed with myself because I've finally learnt how to collage!  I'm so atrocious at this electronic stuff that any step forward is huge for me. The first collage contains pictures of us just hanging around, enjoying being at home: L11 looking gorgeous; T12…
